Jarrod Bowen will need to keep his head on right after recent Hull City form



Hull City are on the verge of gate-crashing the chasing pack, looking to formulate a late charge towards the play-offs.

Nigel Adkins arrested an early slump in the season to fire the Tigers form into order and get them pushing up the table.

Hull have lost just three in their last ten and have won five – and are tenth in the table – only four points off the play-offs.

One man who takes most of the plaudits for the Tigers’ incredible form is attacker Jarrod Bowen.

The 22-year-old is by far and away the club’s top scorer this season with 18 goals – seven more than striker Fraizer Campbell.

In front of goal Bowen has had the Midas touch as everything seems to be turning to gold.

This is his best scoring season – already four ahead of his season total last campaign.

And with 11 games to go, Bowen has plenty of time to extend his scoring form and fire the Tigers to the top-six.

And the 22-year-old must be over the moon with his form – but needs to remain grounded.

With this relative level of success, he needs to make sure it does not go to his head, and he considers himself bigger than the club.

He is still young, and players with his talent could have a chip on their shoulder and soon try and force a move away should there be interest.

Bowen should focus on the rest of the season and of course, carry on his sensational form.

That all comes from confidence and that will be sky high for the attacker, and if he could bottle that right now, he would be on fire for the test of the campaign.

But with success comes pressure and if the games start to run out and his form dries up, there will be a heap of pressure on him to produce and keep their play-off hopes on track.

There are multiple facets to good form, and Bowen needs to keep his head on and focus on his game ahead of the run in – this is the making of him after a successful season last time out.
